Kale thoran/ Kale stir fry with coconut (Serves 4)

Kale thoran

Hello friends, Hope everyone is back to routine after the celebrations and resolutions that’s been made for this year. We had planned a whole lot of things but this year started really bad with all of us returning back to US sick after our short visit to India. But things are getting back to normal and I have resumed the cooking Smile. This is an easy peasy thoran/stir fry recipe and here I have used kale instead of spinach. The result was amazing and I have also tried other greens like swiss card and mustard green using the same recipe and were really happy with the results. Hope you all enjoy too.


1. Kale 1 bunch, washed, cleaned and finely chopped
2. Grated coconut ½ cup
    Garlic 1 clove
    Shallots 2-3 nos
    Cumin seeds 1/8 tsp
    Dry red chilly 2 nos
3. Turmeric powder ¼ tsp
4. Curry leaves a few
5. Mustard seeds ¼ tsp
6. Salt as needed
7. Oil 2 tsp


  • In a blender cup, crush together grated coconut, garlic, shallots, cumin seeds and dry red chilly.
  • Next heat oil in a deep pan and splutter mustard seeds. Add the chopped kale leaves and stir-fry for few minutes or until they start to wilt. Add the crushed mixture and mix everything to combine well. Sprinkle little water (about 2-3 TBSPs) and cook covered for about 10 minutes at medium-low heat. Open lid and stir occasionally. Lastly keep the pan uncovered and stir fry on high for couple of minutes and remove from fire. Serve hot with rice..
